Question about Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
Rut-roh... Well, a HDD (for now) is a mechanical device, with a motor and a spinning, coated disk inside of it. Over time it can simply wear out. If you do get it running one more time, immediately copy it to another drive. Otherwise, if it's a "goner" now, then you can find places that can take the drive and still get your data off of it. They might even be able to place the actual disk into a duplicate drive housing (?). It may be pricey, not sure, but we all learn the hard way. I now put really important stuff onto cds and dvds - even flash drives as they've gotten crazy-cheap. A spinning mechanical gizmo isn't a long-term solution. Can't really address those online backup websites. I do get nervous about my files being stored ONLINE somewhere.
